Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Enamelware Coffee PercolatorMemorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer here in Maine and New England, so this week we are spotlighting five accessories that are must-haves for one of our favorite summertime activities: camping. June is also National Camping Month, so stock up on all of your camping supplies, including the following, before you head out into the woods!

Coffee & Cooking

The Enamelware Coffee Percolator is the perfect way to prepare your cup of Joe in your campsite in the morning, while our Cast Iron Recipes Cookbook offers easy meals that can be made in your cast iron pan over the fire.

Classic Dominoes SetFun & Games

Besides the deck of cards and maybe a cribbage board, a Classic Dominoes Set is a great game to bring along on a camping trip because it is compact and simple to set up.

Clean & Comfortable

Stay clean and fresh with our Honeysuckle Bar Soap, and keep your skin moisturized throughout the trip, rain or shine. For added comfort on a fold-out chair or in the tent, our Dogs of Summer Pillow offers the padding you need and joins in on the fun of your camping trip.

Weekly Spotlight: Camping and the Great Outdoors

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Camping Dog Indoor/Outdoor RugHappy June 1st! We’ve been ready to kick summer into high gear, and to celebrate the start of Camping Month and Great Outdoors Month® we are featuring five camping essentials to bring with you on your great outdoor excursions.

Whether you’re sleeping in a tent, camper or in a camp with four sturdy walls, an indoor/outdoor rug is a must. This adventurous Camping Dog is perfect for laying down on an outdoor porch or the ground to keep your sleeping quarters or indoor spaces free of dirt. With mountains in the distance and wheels on the road, you may find similarities in your own surroundings that enhance the woodsy charm.

Scented Firestarters

Summer campfires have to be the unofficial mascot of summer. Start warming up or making s’mores with a well-built fire, and if you need a little help to get the flames going, our fire starters will do the trick! With four scents to choose from, you can even make your event or trip a little more cozy.

Scented Camping MugsTo go along with the fire starters, our Scented Camping Mug Candles are perfect for placing on picnic tables or campground stumps for extra lighting and again, a little extra coziness. When the candle is done burning, you have a 10 ounce mug to drink from! Both the Scented Firestarters and Mug Candles are eco-friendly and biodegradable, so you don’t have to worry about leaving to big of a footprint at your camping site or forest cabin.

Kitchen Storage Tins Set

Evergreen Trees Paper Placemat Pads

When you start packing snacks and food for the trip, think about using sealed tin containers for saving space and keeping your goodies fresh throughout your excursion. Our Kitchen Storage Tins come as a set of three, and while they look great in your kitchen at home, they are also ideal containers to bring along this summer.

Finally, make camping cleanup easy with Paper Placemats featuring woodland imagery to complement your natural surroundings. Printed on recycled paper with eco-friendly inks, you won’t have to worry about contributing an environmental mess on your weekend away.

Wednesday Spotlight: Camping

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

We love spending time outdoors here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, especially in the spring and summer when there are leaves on the trees and there are flowers in bloom. We love offering outdoor and pet décor alongside our indoor furniture and decoratives, so you can enjoy the outdoors just as much as we do. A favorite summer pastime for families is camping – and this week’s Spotlight is all about some of our favorite camping accessories. Whether you retreat to a lake house for the weekend or prefer to spend time in the woods in a tent, these items will work for you.

Teak Folding Chair

Picnic Table SetSit Back and Relax

While you’re roasting marshmallows around the campsite fire or enjoying dinner hot off the grill, make the experience more enjoyable with comfortable and practical seating. Our Teak Folding Chair is an excellent option, and is even available as a Reclining Chair for maximum comfort on your camping trip. Both can be easily folded for packing up the car and for storing after a trip, cutting down the hassle of bringing furniture along to your campsite.

Practical Dining

If you prefer eating around or near a table while camping, we have the perfect companion to your personal chairs or our Teak Chairs. The 36″ Square Teak Table is just the right size for bringing along to any campsite and its umbrella hole offers you the option of being shaded for the duration of your vacation. For a more complete dining set, we recommend our Picnic Table Set, complete with an umbrella. Don’t have a lot of packing room? No problem – this table conveniently folds down to a manageable size so you don’t have to worry about bringing it along and leaving other things behind when you set off on a long camping trip.

Solar LED LightCamp Accessories

One of the advantages of camp accessories is that you can almost always justify needing them. For example, our Solar LED Light will add a nice glow to your campsite or any cabin’s porch without the use of propane or an open flame. Our Brown Braided Log Carrier will assist in moving those logs from a wood pile to a campfire or woodstove, sparing you from splinters and time spent away from the fire. Finally, our indoor/outdoor rugs are customer favorites, and we particularly like the Adirondack Lakeside Indoor/Outdoor Rug. The peaceful image showcases some of our favorite outdoor characteristics and activities, and looks great on a camp doorstep or outside a tent or camper.
